Mike Trout finished 2-for-5 with a home run and four RBI in Saturday's 10-0 rout of the Tigers.

Trout hit a grand slam that capped off the Angels' nine-run first inning against Tigers starter Rick Porcello. He also singled in the game. Trout got off to a slow start but is now batting .304 with an .868 OPS, two home runs and 11 RBI through 16 games this season.

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Athletics are calling up Jesse Hahn to start Saturday against the Astros.

It was previously reported that Hahn wouldn't be called up this weekend due to a blister, but he's apparently feeling better. Sean Manaea is making his major league debut Friday, so it's unclear who Hahn will bump from the rotation. Chris Bassitt is probably the most likely candidate. Hahn has posted a 2.04 ERA and 13/9 K/BB ratio in 17 2/3 innings through four starts this season with Triple-A Nashville.

Kris Bryant (ankle) is not in the Cubs' lineup on Friday.

Bryant turned his right ankle on Thursday and underwent a precautionary MRI, but the results confirmed that the sprain is minor. Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune says the third baseman "may miss a couple days," but adds that the Cubs are "not worried" about the injury. Javier Baez is filling in at the hot corner on Friday.

Orioles signed LHP Wandy Rodriguez to a minor league contract.

Rodriguez pitched well this spring for the Astros -- 3.95 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 11 strikeouts over 13 2/3 innings -- but didn't make the Opening Day roster and was released. Dan Connolly of BaltimoreBaseball.com says that Rodriguez is headed to extended spring training before presumably being assigned to Triple-A Norfolk. The veteran left-hander holds a 5.34 ERA in the majors since the beginning of 2014.

MLB suspended Dee Gordon for 80 games without pay for testing positive for performance-enhancing substances.

Stunning late-night news. Gordon tested positive for exogenous Testosterone and Clostebol. The suspension is effective immediately. Gordon has turned his career around over the past two seasons and won the NL batting crown during his first season with the Marlins last year. The 28-year-old recently signed a five-year, $50 million extension with Miami, but the club will now be without him until after the All-Star break.

Jose Fernandez pitched a respectable game in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Dodgers, striking out eight and allowing two runs over six innings.

Along with the eight strikeouts, Fernandez walked three while scattering five hits. The two runs on his line both came home to roost in the first inning courtesy of an RBI double by Yasmani Grandal and an RBI infield single by Yasiel Puig. Fernandez settled in after that frame. The flamethrower has produced a mixed-bag season through five starts, pitching to a 4.08 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 40/14 K/BB ratio over 28 2/3 innings. He will play host to the Diamondbacks in his next start.

Rubby De La Rosa was clutch in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Cardinals, striking out 10 over seven shutout innings.

De La Rosa allowed just two hits on the evening. He walked two and exited having thrown a tidy 94 pitches (65 strikes). It was a sparkling outing any way you cut it. Through four starts (seven appearances), the 27-year-old right-hander holds a 4.18 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 28/8 K/BB ratio. A road date with the Marlins shows next on his schedule as he tries to build on Thursday's fantastic start.

Mallex Smith played catalyst from the bottom of the Braves' order Thursday, finishing 3-for-4 with two doubles, two RBI and a run scored in a 5-3 win over the Red Sox.

Smith actually could have had a bigger night, but his line drive to right field with two on in the second inning bounced over the short Fenway wall, rendering it a ground-rule double and keeping Smith confined to two bases and just one RBI. He also swatted an RBI single in the sixth. It was easily Smith's best game as a member of the Braves, as the speedster is hitting just .188/.278/.292 through 16 games, even with Thursday's outburst.

Manny Machado went 2-for-4 with a grand slam, five RBI and three runs scored as the Orioles trounced the White Sox 10-2 on Thursday.

Machado jumped on a slider from reliever Jake Petricka in the sixth inning to turn a relatively close game into a blowout. The homer was his seventh of the season, tying him for second-most in the American League (including with his teammate Chris Davis). The 23-year-old has 16 RBI and 19 runs scored to go with a .333/.389/.678 line through 21 games.
Apr 28 - 10:55 PM

Aaron Nola allowed just two singles over seven scoreless innings Thursday in a no-decision against the Nationals.

Nola had great movement on his pitches and was incredibly efficient, walking one batter and striking out seven while throwing 54 out of 77 pitches for strikes. He didn’t get the win, but the Phillies eventually got the upper hand in the ninth inning to finish off the three-game sweep. The Phillies held the Nationals scoreless over the final 22 innings of the series. With a 3.55 ERA and 37/6 K/BB ratio over 33 innings, Nola continues to impress.
Apr 28 - 9:26 PM

Jake Arrieta was no Johnny Vander Meer on Thursday, but he was victorious after holding the Brewers to one run over five innings.

Arrieta needed 92 pitches to get through five innings, allowing three hits and four walks while striking out six. He gave up an RBI double to Alex Presley in the fifth inning to end his home scoreless streak at 52 2/3 innings. That’s the second-longest such streak in MLB history. Arrieta is now 5-0 with a 1.00 ERA and 32/10 K/BB ratio in 36 innings. He’ll get the division rival Pirates next week.

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) allowed three runs (two earned) on six hits and three walks over 3 2/3 innings Thursday in his first minor league rehab start with Triple-A Pawtucket.

Rodriguez, who is working his way back from a right patella subluxation, struck out two batters and threw 45 out of 75 pitches for strikes. Coming off the shaky outing, the southpaw still figures to make one or two more starts in the minors before joining the Red Sox. Henry Owens will continue to hold down a rotation spot for now.
